ComingSoon.net – Open Road Films has acquired all U.S. rights to ‘Marshall’, starring Chadwick Boseman (upcoming ‘Black Panther’, ’42’, ‘Captain America: Civil War’, ‘Get on Up’) as legendary attorney and Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall and Josh Gad (‘Frozen’, ‘The Wedding Ringer’, upcoming ‘Beauty and the Beast’) as lawyer Sam Friedman.
The financiers of ‘Marshall’ are Star Light Media, Inc., Hero Film, Ltd. and Sky Legend along with Hunter Ryan and David Ryan. Executive producers are Peter Luo and Belton Lee. Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions has all international distribution rights for ‘Marshall’.
Thanks to WGRZ, we have more information on the filming of ‘Marshall’ (which began shooting yesterday) as well as our first look of Chadwick as Thurgood Marshall. Incredibly excited for this film!
Filming began in earnest Monday for a major motion picture being shot in Western New York.
“Marshall” is the story of a case involving Thurgood Marshall, when the late U.S. Supreme Court Justice was employed by the NAACP as a defense attorney early in his law career. Set in the late 1930s and early 1940s, producers were lured to the area in part because of its abundance of period buildings, according to Tim Clark of the Buffalo-Niagara Film Commission.
The first day of shooting took place at the LaSalle Branch of the Niagara Falls Public Library on Buffalo Avenue.
